It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy either:
The Republican National Committee has cancelled a fundraiser with conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who is under fire for promoting an edited video that falsely portrays former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod as having boasted about discriminating against a white farmer looking for her assistance.
Breitbart was scheduled to appear with RNC Chairman Michael Steele at a reception later this month in Beverly Hills.
Of course the RNC is treading lightly here. Breitbart is the BFF of the right-wing blogosphere and teabaggers, and the RNC doesn’t want to upset them, so they are in spin mode on the cancellation:
We are working on scheduling and we fully plan to have another event scheduled soon based on our existing trips to California,” an RNC spokesman said in a statement sent to CNN.
The spokesman said the fundraiser was cancelled “To better capitalize on the fall fundraising season that happens post-Labor Day, while also lowering costs by utilizing existing trips to California.”
The party that doesn’t mind spending thousands on strippers is now wanting to lower costs? Sure they are.
